Another thing that can help you stand out and get you closer to a new job is sending your resume straight to the person that is leading the team you’d like to join. For example, if it’s a marketing position you’re applying for, find the name of the Marketing Manager and send your resume directly to them. You can easily find them on LinkedIn, check Twitter or other social media to find their email. You can also try contacting them on LinkedIn itself. In your email/message it’s important to write why you believe you’re the perfect candidate.
